The heartbeat of film, graphic design, journalism and communications at Pacific University. 

The Media Arts Department offers a comprehensive, multidisciplinary approach to media creation that embraces the digital media tools of today. The department houses multiple programs including film & video, graphic design, journalism, multimedia, communication, and sports communication, as well as student organizations like the Media Art Production Services and The Pacific Index.  

We are a tight knit community and our small classes emphasize creativity, collaboration, and professional practices that will serve you far beyond graduation. Our undergraduate campus in Forest Grove is in close proximity to Portland, Ore., which allows students to connect with professional organizations and opportunities within their creative field.
